Acme. Owned by Eden Prairie, Minn.-based Supervalu, it was once the market leader in PA. Through June, it had 67 stores,$1.52 billion in sales and a 19.15 percent hold on the market, down from a year ago. There are questions about the future of the grocery chain, which has been up for sale. Any buyer would have to contend with weakening sales, high pension costs and costly labor contracts, analysts say.

Why the hell are you bringing this dead thread back? Who care? Nobody did in May, either.

Just pointing the faults out

It is really sad to see Americans as uninformed as you.

I live in Bloomington near a Cub store. The Cub store has a union and pays it's checkout people a living wage and real benefits, which benefits our community.

Shoppers are now gravitating to Walmart, which pays many of its employees under $10 per hour, and most get no benefit.

Does that benefit our community?

People like you are destroying the middle class in America.

A defense for WHAT?

People are entitled to a decent living. Unions help them get that living. Eventually Walmart will be unionized as well.

Hopefully while there is still a middle class left in America.

Observe, the leftist refuses to argue the topic at hand and instead repeats rhetoric.

Seems like, you're pretending to ignore American workers and their families needs...Nice work, for a scab/slug.

After God had finished the rattlesnake, the toad, and the vampire, he had some awful substance left with which he made a scab.

A scab is a two-legged animal with a corkscrew soul, a water brain, a combination backbone of jelly and glue.

Where others have hearts, he carries a tumor of rotten principles.

When a scab comes down the street, men turn their backs and angels weep in heaven, and the devil shuts the gates of hell to keep him out.

No man (or woman) has a right to scab so long as there is a pool of water to drown his carcass in, or a rope long enough to hang his body with.

Judas was a gentleman compared with a scab. For betraying his master, he had character enough to hang himself. A scab has not.

Esau sold his birthright for a mess of pottage.

Judas sold his Savior for thirty pieces of silver.

Benedict Arnold sold his country for a promise of a commision in the british army.

The scab sells his birthright, country, his wife, his children and his fellowmen for an unfulfilled promise from his employer.

Esau was a traitor to himself; Judas was a traitor to his God; Benedict Arnold was a traitor to his country.

A scab is a traitor to his God, his country, his family and his class.

Author --- Jack London (1876-1916)
